Caribbean Seafood Soup

I cannot tell you how excited I am about this post today.

I am not even sure if it's more so about this amazing soup that I made. Or is it this amazing pot from Revol that I used to make this amazing soup?

This seafood soup is ram-packed with flavor and as much seafood that you can think of. Smooth, creamy, and spicy it makes a great soup for a weeknight dinner.

In fact, it can be used to make any of my soups from pigeon peas to my corn soup.

Making this soup in this Revol Revolution 2 Ceramic Cookware Induction really made this experience amazing.

Revol Induction Dutch Pot

This is a multipurpose pot. This dutch oven pot is made of high-performing porcelain and can be used on the stovetop, oven, and in the microwave.

The strong ceramic makes the base of this pot is so smooth and it is 100% food safe. No chemicals or toxins are released into your food when cooking.

I've made multiple dishes in this pot since I've gotten it, from this soup with its strong flavors, to bread pudding and I have not had to worry about the flavors of the last dish affecting the flavor of the next.

This is not a heavy dutch pot either.

I have another dutch pot, I need to use two hands and bent knees to lift out. This one is not too heavy and does not require me to season it. And to date, I have not seen a scratch on it

So this was the perfect dish to get my soup up and ready.

How to make Caribbean Seafood Soup

I used all the types of seafood I love in here: baby blue crabs, mussels, clams, and shrimp. I also wanted to add some conch but boy, have you seen the price of conch in the markets? My gosh.

I used all raw seafood and cooked before I combined them with the broth, but feel free to use those seafood mixes. I don't especially like them.

Well, honestly, I just really do not like "fake crab meat". Like, what is that really? What are you using to dupe crab meat?

This soup comes together quickly so I do suggest making sure everything is prepped and ready to go.

If you plan make your own coconut milk, which always tastes better than those canned ones, you probably can make that the day before if possible.

Revol also has these amazing serving dishes. It took me a minute to decide on what I wanted on their site.

I decided on the Equinoxe line oval serving dish and the bowl ceramic.

The material of this line is again ceramic and both of these can serve both warm and cold items. Annnd they also are oven microwave and dishwasher safe.

I love dishes that I don't have to worry too much about if I can use them here or use them there.

The main concept of this soup is to blend all the flavors of the items together. Using a pot that is induction based ensures that heat is evenly distributed and makes cooking faster.

And I know we all want to get this soup as quickly as possible.

I paired this with some sweet honey bread rounds and sour cream (optional).

And this feast was an amazing one.

Sorry I couldn't wait until the shoot was over.

This was really delicious. And it freezes well.

Just be careful of what you're putting it into with those crab legs. They can poke a hole in your ziploc bag I heard.. hehe.

I wish Revol made freezer pots.. haha.

I really do like their products. I mentioned that I used it not just for this soup, but for a few other dishes, one of which I'm going to share later this week and it really shows the versatility of their cookware.

It has become a staple in the short time it has been introduced into my kitchen. I replaced one of my deeper pots that even though it is listed as "non stick", it sticks, burns and does not give me even cooking.

So if you are on the market for a good dutch pot, or other ceramic cookware then take a visit to Revol and look at their amazing products. And they just might have a little goody there for you too.
